The 5 Habits of Effective Job Seekers. Habit 1: Don’t Post and Pray
This week, we can’t wait to share a 5 part series on “The 5 Habits of Effective Job Seekers” based off of a webinar recently released by StartWire CEO, Chris Forman.
For the next five weeks, stay tuned as we break down one of the 5 habits each week. We’ll tell you what NOT to do, and how to start rocking your job search by getting into these 5 habits.
The topic for this week is: Don’t Post and Pray.
It’s actually not very effective to find a job solely through applying online. Statistically, only 20% of corporate positions are filled from job boards. The others are filled through personal referrals and networking.
Check back throughout the week to hear more on this topic. Tomorrow: a post from career expert, Chandlee Bryan, on how to avoid the pitfalls of “posting and praying.”
